Reviews Mi Barrio Good Job

Mi Barrio

Good Job

I'm stoked that bands out there are gluttons for punishment and seek me out to do a review of their album. That's cool. However, I have a meager complaint from now on; no more CDR copies of your release. If it's a full-length like Good Job it gets the 200 Words or Less treatment. EPs will probably be ignored completely or sent to new intern...writer Zach F. to review. This has nothing to do with Mi Barrio personally. So for the love of Pete don't be offended. I just need more to look at than a slip case and little note.

Anyhow, Mi Barrio is a New Jersey punk/hardcore outfit whose influences range anywhere from The Jesus Lizard with all the quirky stops and starts to bang your cranium destruction ala Today is the Day. Needless to say, this is a bit bizarre but very interesting. The songs shift, stop, break, spin out of control, and then out of nowhere come back together in feral stomp of crushing guitars and manic rhythms.

I have no idea what the lyrics are about because... yeah read above. So I can't comment on that. I can tell you Mi Barrio is a good nutty slap in the face.
